Project Helps Preserve Character Slipping Away

Project Helps Preserve Character Slipping Away

Editor, Growing up in Laguna Beach, and having the perspective of living elsewhere for periods of time, I have been able to see the changes to our wonderful home in ways someone who has never left may not notice.

Experts Lacked Originality

Experts Lacked Originality

Editor, In my opinion, the so-called transit workshop on Feb. 10 was a bust. The information presented was so basic and elementary that the audience quickly proved they knew more about the various transit systems than the consultant.  The capper was when the consultant appeared to ask the audience what they would do. Huh? One attendee […]

Savoring a Season of Change

Savoring a Season of Change

By Robert Campbell Like most of her teammates at Laguna Beach High, Cara Borkovec grew up playing water polo. Now she’s a senior co-captain of arguably the best high school water polo team in the country. But Borkovec is not your typical southern California girl. In fact, she’s from Oak Park, Ill., just east of […]

Village Matters

Life-changing Christmas By Ann Christoph For all you kids out there whose parents won’t let you have your own phone, or the latest computer game—I’m here to put that in perspective.  I not only had to walk to school in the snow uphill both ways, but our family was the last in my class to […]

Bringing Back Laguna’s Lagoon

Bringing Back Laguna’s Lagoon

Editor, Long before vast Spanish, Mexican and American cattle ranches changed the natural landscape of South Orange County, Aliso Beach had a seasonal estuary – a rare coastal wetlands. This last remaining lagoon in Laguna Beach can be restored if inland summer urban runoff is captured for reuse and the inland area of Aliso Beach […]

Land Deal May Open ‘Gateway’ for Town’s Entry

For the past decade, most residents paid little attention to undeveloped property near the Art-a-Fair grounds at 725 Laguna Canyon Road.

But now that the city of Laguna […]

The Slant: Trying to Time the Yuletide

The Slant: Trying to Time the Yuletide

  I get struck by Christmas spirit in July or August. That is about the time of year the year I stumble on a movie like ”Home Alone” or “Christmas Vacation” on TV. Someone is having a Christmas in July sale, which usually brings Christmas spirit to peak at the wrong time of the year. […]
